SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Antigen Rapid Test

SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Antigen Rapid Test

Atlas Link had launched NOVA Test SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Antigen Rapid Test Kit(Colloidal Gold Immunochromatography) in markets. The test uses the double antibody sandwich method to detect the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) antigen-in human throat swab and nasal swab samples. When the antigen is contained in the sample, it will react with the gold standard antibody to form an antigen-gold standard antibody complex, move on the nitrocellulose membrane by chromatography, and reach detection line. When the coated antibody is encountered, the antibody-antigen-gold standard antibody complex will be formed, and a red ribbon will appear, indicating a positive result.

 

The NOVA Test SARS-CoV-2 Rapid Antigen Test is for use in point of care settings for both symptomatic and asymptomatic people. This can help healthcare professionals identify a SARS-CoV-2 infection in people suspected to carry the virus with results typically ready in 15 minutes. In addition, it serves as a valuable initial screening test for individuals that have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 infected patients or a high risk environment. The test has a sensitivity of 91.4%-96.8% and a specificity of 97.5%-99.1%, based on 300 samples from two independent study centers.

 

In general, antigen tests have a high specificity, though are not as sensitive as molecular tests that amplify the target viral DNA or RNA sequence in order to generate a quantifiable signal to indicate the presence of the virus in a sample. Therefore, to make up for the potential decrease in sensitivity of an antigen test, negative results should be analyzed together with additional patient factors, such as COVID-19 exposure history, clinical symptoms, additional test results to help guide the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of the patient.
